Great Sean Penn character in this movie...

I didn't know Pat Metheny did anything cool... thought he was all fusion and elevators...

Jake, you'd better hold on to that can. Pass it to your children after you prank them with it. Use it to tech them lessons like, "...and that's why you always leave a note," or any other valuable life lesson.

Never saw "The Falcon & The Snowman" but I DID see "The Serpent & The Rainbow"

This is a weird song. "You're kinda ugly, but I like you anyway"

@Claw: I have 3 different cans of novelty mixed nuts infested with snakes. I think the message of the prank is "Don't expect any happiness... Even joy is filled with snakes..."

What a great show!
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:03am JakeGould:

I never saw "Her" or "Falcon and the Snowman" or "Serpent and the Rainbow." I saw "First Blood" for the first time last week.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:04am Claw!:

@jake - "infested with snakes" is a great way to describe those novelty cans!

The Falcon and The Snowman is about two American assholes who become Russian spies.
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:04am Listener David:

Falcon and the Snowman is about spies. Was a real story.
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:05am Brendan:

Yes its about espionage and drugs . I thought it was good. Sean Penn's flawed character reminded me of something you'd see in a Cohen bros. Film
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:05am Roberto:

I was going to say that sounded like a Swampy story.

I saw this film a long time ago and didn't remember the soundtrack at all. But I really dig what I have been hearing lately.

Yay! Again!

I loved "Her". Guest appearance by Alan Watts!

this is a pretty great tune.

James Hetfield sounds really different on this track...

@Claw!: Ha!!
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:21am Brendan:

Did anyone see 'Under The Skin'?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:22am Claw!:

I like the soundtrack stuff, Joe. Real nice.
Speaking of which - what's up with Devin E. Levins? Y'all really need to give that man a longer time slot. One hour is nowhere near enough.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:22am Rev. Turnip Druid:

HOLY CRAP, best segue of all time. From the Planete Sauvage piece to that Holy Mountain bit -- this Jodorowsky/Cherry riff is probably me favorite sound ever recorded. And needs to go on for weeks without a break.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:22am Nasty Les:

Yeah, fantastic film and a fantastic sound
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:23am bobdoesthings:

this is gorgeous!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:23am Nasty Les:

'Under The Skin' I meant, but it also goes for 'The Holy Mountain'
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:24am bobdoesthings:

I wish I could double-clicky-star or somehow leave a special flag on tracks that I need to go out and purchase.. would make making sense of my 10,000 favorites a bit easier
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:25am JakeGould:

No Brendan. Did not see "Under the Skin." Is that a film about the stigma and shame of splinters?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:26am bobdoesthings:

@myself - or perhaps don't be so flippant with your precious clicky stars.. huh?!
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:29am Brendan:

Under the skin i thought was a really amazing example of filmmaking as art. People seemed to love or hate it, but if you like Kubrick, David Lynch , Nicolas Roeg , i cant recommend it enough.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:29am Joe McG:

@Brendan: I really liked it.
Avatar Thu. 2/12/15 11:31am Andy M.:

This Riz Ortolani piece is beautiful. Hard to believe it's from a movie called Cannibal Holocaust.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:33am bobdoesthings:

@andy m - you ever see it? It's pretty disturbing
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:33am JakeGould:

Now that I checked what "Under the Skin" was, I'll hate it because Scarlett Johansson is in it. She's miscast in all of these sci-fi/action roles.
Avatar Thu. 2/12/15 11:34am Andy M.:

@bobdoesthings I've never seen it. Did you love it?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:37am bobdoesthings:

@andy - No. But it was... well.. It was an experience. I just recall being disturbed.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:38am Claw!:

Oh, Andy, that's just a name. There are no cannibals holocausting in that film.
But there are cannibals. And impalements. And animals being killed. If it weren't for the lovely soundtrack to even it out, it might be considered "Too Hot For TV!" by most folks.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:40am bobdoesthings:

@claw -- yeah ughh I recall the turtle being killed.. that made me a bit queasy.. but yeah it was more of a shock film.. exploitation to the extreme.. Wasn't the main lady raped as well?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:40am Nasty Les:

Yeah, 'Under The Skin' was for sure one of the best films I've seen in a long time. Some amazing imagery. Scarlett Johansson was great in it too. Kind of a more surreal and impressionistic 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' would be my closest description, but that doesn't really do it justice. Even if the plot description sounds more like 'Species' ;-)
Avatar Thu. 2/12/15 11:41am JakeGould:

Anyone see “Cannibal Slumber Party?”
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:42am Claw!:

Bob, now you're just spoiling it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:42am Greg from Bloomfield:

Yeah, can't hang with Cannibal Holocaust. Even the director apologized for the animal stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:42am common:

@bobdoesthings and claw: I can never see cannibal holocaust because of what I've read about the animals. yuk. that soundtrack is crazy, though.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:43am Joe McG:

@common: I'm not really into horror of any kind, so I've never seen "Cannibal Holocaust," but a lot of the music is really good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:44am Greg from Bloomfield:

@common: If you ever come across an edited version, check it out. The rest of it is actually pretty great.
Avatar Thu. 2/12/15 11:45am Polyus:

The animal stuff killed it for me as well, which is kind of weird, considering what happens to people in that movie.
Avatar Thu. 2/12/15 11:48am Cecile:

If I only had to listen to the music, I'd be a big horror movie fan.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:48am Claw!:

Yeah Polyus, but with the people, it's all SFX. And most people are jerks anyway.
I fast forward through the turtle stuff. I like turtles.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/12/15 11:49am Claw!:

I love horror movies. It's just a bonus for me that they tend to have killer soundtracks (no pun intended).

I notice that there are no comments logged here after noon, show's end, I guess because the Accuplaylist goes down for the show, but LO here it is a few hours later, and so I come to say that wow this was an eye-opening show, Will J
